Axl Rose chats on 'Kimmel' in first TV interview in 20 years
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" won a bit of the music lottery this week as he not only hosted Prince, but sat down with a very cogent Axl Rose, who broke his 20-year TV interview hiatus.
The Guns 'N Roses frontman shocked pretty much everybody by appearing on time, speaking clearly and actually behaving affably, after a long serious history of doing none of those things. He told Kimmel about how he used to work at Tower Record (remember those?), his love of Halloween, his political opinions and even brought a burger truck to the studio so the audience got a free snack.
Rock stars. Yeesh, right?
Rose's chat occurred shortly after he played with the rock band at last weekend's Bridge School Benefit, Neil Young's annual event featuring the biggest names in rock. GN'R's acoustic set wasn't so hot but at least his interview was.
